In the business world, reviews and referrals are everything. A positive review from a happy customer can make all the difference in whether or not someone decides to do business with you. That’s why ensuring you’re doing everything you can to encourage people to spread the word about your company is essential. But for people to refer you, they need to know how they can help you, so be direct and remind them often.
Where can you collect business reviews and referrals?
Google Business Page is an excellent place for getting reviews as it ranks you amongst competitors with positive 5 stars ratings, which makes standing out easy plus helps penetrate new clients through organic search results.
Social media is another excellent way to spread the word about your business. It allows people to tell their stories and experience with you genuinely. They can do this by posting on their own social media page or even a town Facebook group if it would benefit others within the community.
And remember, when it comes to reviews and referrals, more is always better. So make sure to ask your clients to leave a review.
